Exactly, fricking whiners about too hot, hell we still have snow on the ground and sub freezing temps.

So I'm not going to be to offensive like the others but at least you get to go for nightly rides when the sun is down, I'd rather have that then snow and 20 degree temps where its just not possible to ride but all pain is the same when a rider can't get on his bike I understand you

When I was in Saudi I had to work out on the flight-line at a new airport being built in the middle of the desert. My first day it was 128 degrees under the shade of the wing of my airplane. The only way I could stay cool was to wear long sleeve shirts and wear a wet rag on my head and pour water on my shirt. If I rode there I would probably do the same and the water evaporation on the bike should make things "fairly" cool. But I would imagine a full face helmet would be torture. I'd soak it in ice water before going on a ride. :) You're right though. When I was stationed in Vegas I remember the faster I rode the hotter it got. It was like a blast furnace with the heat coming off the desert roads.

lol Saudi isn't all that intolerable. I did my time there too and it's hot but by and large unless you're in Daharan (spelling?) or another coastal city it's hot but isn't gonna kill anyone.

I spent most of my 6 months there digging sand and building bunkers wearing full BDU's.

Some tips

Woot for another rider who feels the burn!

I'm a Vegas native we randomly went up to 96 the other day, 115+ is the norm come summer time. Get the A*s MX cooling vest or the Bilt cooling vest, (I prefer the A*s form fit over the awkward Bilt vest but it does work too) in conjunction with the heat-out crew neck. Submerge vest in water throw it on over the crew neck and I'm good for at least an hour or more if I have water bottles on me. This is just my preferred combination over the many cooling techniques out there. Think about picking up a water pack too, I know there's plenty out there. Staying hydrated is huge while riding in ridiculously high temps!

I ride everyday fuck weather conditions just pick up your balls and gear accordingly OP!
